PGKA - Coach´s Corner - Tag game

Updated: Oct 27, 2021

Two players with a puck each, skate in a defined small area (cones) and stick handle their pucks. One player tries to tag his opponent with one hand while still controlling the puck. Once you get tagged you hunt the other player.


After 20-40s whistle to change - Pass the puck to a teammate waiting on the outside of the playing area.


Try to play against different team mates. This can be played in different areas of the rink if you have a larger group of players or be used as a station.


The key points are:

- control puck while tagging with one hand your opponent

- heads up

- quick, decisive moves with the puck

- skate forwards, backwards, open hips (mohawk), etc. to escape the tag

- stop and go

- high intensity
